Located outside Kuala Lumpur in Krau Wildlife Game Reserve, the National Elephant Conservation Centre at Kuala Gandah was founded in 1989 and takes its name from the Kuala Gandah stream within the reserve. Prior to this, the staff operated a mobile team with a temporary base at the Jengka Pusat plantation. Today, the centre aims to ensure the protection and management of the elephants and their habitat, enhance the public's knowledge, awareness and support for elephant conservation, and manage the centre for research, education and eco-tourism. Come into close contact with these magnificent animals, and learn more about the conservation programme and its objectives. There are opportunities to feed the elephants under the supervision of the local rangers, who are also on hand to explain more about the protection and conservation of the Asian elephant.
